U.S. Congressman Ted Poe, Co-Chair of Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus, to Address Over 100 Delegates
U.S. Representative Ted Poe (R-TX), new co-chair of Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus, will address over 100 delegates of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, one of the nation’s oldest Muslim communities, as part of its fifth annual "Day on the Hill." The Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus – the first caucus of a Muslim community to be formed in U.S. Congress last year and co-chaired by Rep. Poe and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) for the 114th Session – plans to bring greater visibility and awareness to the increasing religious repression of persecuted Ahmadi Muslims and other persecuted religious minorities worldwide. Delegates will brief hundreds of U.S. lawmakers on the dire consequences of violent extremism and the human rights abuses of Ahmadi Muslims in South and Central Asia, the Middle East and East Asia, including Pakistan and Indonesia.
